Byron Walker Waterfowl Report

Waterfowl numbers Duck numbers are fluctuating around 800.  500 Canadian geese are using the lake.  
Water level Kingman State Fishing Lake is about 17 inches low due to work being done to the dam and dry weather.  The four main marshes west of the lake are full.  The 3 marshes north of the lake are just now getting water.  Two of the three marshes south of highway 54 have some water however they are not full and have limited space for ducks to land.
Hunting conditions The lake is completely frozen over as are the marshes and ponds.  WARNING-New rip rap has been added to the Kingman State Lake dam and until the metal has been removed, it poses a hazard to hunters, fishermen, and their dogs. Marshes have excellent food plants available once they get flooded. 
Expected hunting success Fair.
Comments The hunting permits required for the past several years have been eliminated. Hunters do not need a daily permit to hunt.
